Millions of people are looking for their next job opportunity, but job hunting can be a full-time job itself.

There are more than 11 million job openings, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

On average, each corporate opening attracts 250 resumes and only about six candidates will get called for an interview.

Here are some tools that will make the search easier for you.

Text Blaze can save you time by storing pre-saved messages and wording that you can use and customize for each application.

You can also download the Microsoft Editor browser extension to scan your documents and highlight any errors.

A Career Builder survey found 77% of hiring managers won’t consider you if there is a typo on your resume.

Check out Mailtrack, a Google extension that works with your Gmail, to see if your emailed application was opened and how many times it was spotted.

If you want to send a resume to a company, but they don’t have job openings advertised, check out Contact Out or Discoverly. The extensions find a specific person’s contact information, like a company’s hiring or recruitment manager.
